Hope you all are well. Today’s post is about personal responsibility. Especially in relationships. Whenever a relationship be it familial, professional or romantic sours or ends negatively, I like to reflect and think about how my actions may have contributed to the dissolution of the relationship or what I could have done differently. I’m by no means a glutton for punishment, rather I strive to avoid making the same mistake over and over again. In theory I’m a huge fan of reciprocity, but I’ve come to realize that I’m an even bigger fan of treating people the way that I would like to be treated. I say all this to say that I need to find a harmonious way to fuse the two. Lately I’ve been feeling like I always end up with the short end of the stick. That’s never any fun.
How have you dealt with situations in which you feel taken advantage of or misled?
